A few pho-toes of Cole around seven months. He's starting to crawl around now, can sit up on his own, and takes swim lessons every Saturday. "Swim" lessons amount to getting wet and promising not to do anything in the pool that would require it to be drained.

Cole's getting his share of culture. He's been to the Italian festival to see Craig's Foto Italiano and to the Greek festival to watch mom and dad chow on Greek food.

Cole also knows a single word: "Dat". He says it all the time, as in, "Cole, see the kitty?" "Dat". "Cole, see the bottle?" "Dat". Smart kid.
